. president obama was focused on ending two wars. and now he's facing two different challenges, whether it's iran's potential nuclear capability or what happens next in syria. both offers challenges that israel faces in. and the key question is what happens next, whether it's on iran, syria or ultimately the arab israeli conflict. >> can we afford a kind of symbolic trip here? there's a lot at stake, what the region is going through, what the partners of israel have seen as necessary to protect itself. what the palestinian response has been to two state solutions and what occupation. so how do we figure our way out of here, and how does the president respond to this? does he have anything substantive to offer? >> i think the president is finding out it's difficult to lower expectations on a visit from the president of the united states. the logic behind the trip. there are a few things behind it. i think the president understands that he did not attempt to make a connection with the israeli people during his first term. given the things you mentioned, these are things, these are issues on
and yesterday, president obama did about having israel's back with a potential military strike, to prevent iran from getting nuclear weapons. president perez told me he believes this is not just talk and that president obama is willing to launch a military strike if necessary. >> america is really looking for peace, but if somebody threatens peace, america is not a chicken. >> america is not a chicken, he says, interesting because it came, those comments, on he same day where iran supreme leader came out and said if israel launches attack or allies launch an attack to try to prevent the nuclear program from going forward, they're going to retaliate and named hifa and tel aviv that the iran supreme leader said would be wiped o so the rhetoric getting very hot. >> shepard: ed henry, thanks. what if anything does the president mean to the stalled peace talks? less bring. >> p.j. crowley. good to see you. >> hi, shep. >> shepard: i don't know if i ever remember things being as difficult and the situation as tenuous as it is across the region. how important a moment was this for the president and di

think in so far as president obama is seen taking a strong hand on iran, that gives him a little more legitimacy to push bibi on the palestinian issue. you have to remember that in benjamin netanyahu's first term, when he clashed with president clinton, he was blamed for causing the cries cries by israelis. and this time around, people have generally sided with benjamin netanyahu. so israelis don't want to see bad relations with the u.s. which they still see as their only reliable ally. >> thank you, ben birnbaum, his new article is in the "new republic," on stands now. >>> could be the mile-high heir, the younger active demographics or maybe it is the democratically controlled state house, whatever it is, something big is happening in colorado. we'll get to the bottom of the rocky mountain high. look, if you have copd like me, you know it can be hard to breathe, and how that feels. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open for 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd
in the middle of president obama's visit to israel iran's supreme leader makes a chilling new threat. and did the u.s. secret service accidently fire a shotgun near iran's president when he was in new york? and why did iran keep it quiet all these years? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in the situation room. >>> let's begin with the breaking news. the stakes couldn't be higher. president obama has warned use of chemical weapons by syria would be a game changer, his words. the u.s. has been investigating words of chemical attacks. now the first assessment shows that chemical weapons were apparently not used. let's go straight to our pentagon correspondent barbara starr. what's the latest? what are you learning? >> reporter: wolf, i've been talking to officials all day and they tell me the initial preliminary intelligence assessment is this. chemical weapons were not used. a chemical substance may well have been. when you look at that video emerging from syrian hospitals they say it does not appear that the symptoms or the treatment match the use of chemical weapons such as outlawed nerve or blister a
importantly, to iran, and resip indicated for by president obama is that the united states and israel stands shoulder to shoulder in terms of the time frame as well as defenses, intelligence, military cooperation so the iranians should understand that there is a common belief between the united states and israel in terms of preventing iran and he got an endorsement of the american plan to prevent iran from becoming a nuclear weapon. >> peter, do you see it the same way, as common ground now? >> well, i think what obama did was buy himself some time. remember, there's a lot of opposition inside the establishment to unilaterally strike anyway. the task will come if the u.s. gets close to a diplomatic deal with iran, would israel support any deal that the united states could manage to get with iran? i think that would be the real test. >> but why does it matter? if we get a deal with iran for them not to go nuclear in terms of weapon, why does it matter if israel opposes that if we accomplish our goal? >> because i think a lot of republicans in congress, frankly, would stand with netanyahu. >>
arguments." today, during a highly publicized visit to israel, president obama assure benjamin netanyahu that the u.s. will do everything in its power to prevent iran from retaining nuclear weapons. so what do you think? will this policy work? will the president's vow to deter iran from a nuclear strategy actually do that? you can weigh in or tweet us at nightline or at terry moran. "world news now" is next with overnight breaking news. check in with "good morning america." they're working while you're sleeping and we're always online at abcnews.com.
that the interesting thing today is that president obama and prime minister netanyahu have not always agreed on iran in terms of the timetable or in terms of what's next or what the response should be. and the two are a year or so away from having to make some kind of strategic decision. they fails the sudden emerm ebs of syria and the possible use of chemical weapons, and that has suddenly risen to the stop of the ageneral da. given that there are different palestinian factions, that looks further down the road. >> do either of you believe that asaud used chemical weapons? or is that being deployed by some forces that have at stake the division between israel and the united states in a substantive way that would create tension. >> i don't know. i think there's lomic to what you just said. the president made it clear that is a red line. that's something that the syrian government would take seriously as vicious as they have been up to now. but to step back to something robin just said, what we saw here today at the press conference was benjamin netanyahu moving much closer to the president's positio
with barack obama and say, hey, listen, you want me to push back on iran and you want to tell me the red line is a year or 18 months from now instead of what my own people -- i tell you what, this is what's going to happen. if you don't want us to go in, i need you over here and i need you standing next to me and i need you assuring my people that you are on my side, that you are on israel's side. so we look forward to having you over here. i really do -- personally, again, no evidence, i really think this has so much to do with netanyahu saying, okay, you want me to really keep delaying things? >> it's actually half that. for an israeli prime minister, the single most important thing you've got to do to remain popular in israel is show that you can manage israel's most important bilateral relationship, the relationship with the united states. netanyahu mismanaged this relationship. he essentially endorsed mitt romney. so the balance of power between the two has definitely shifted in barack obama's direction. the most interesting substantive thing to happen yesterday besides the comment on sy
